MP Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii learned this week that she will be taking part in the next stage of the democracy debate in October.

Gabbard says the news was not a surprise to her. She says her message, “to convey to the White House” principles of service above herself, “resonates with her supporters.

If she is elected president in 2020, Gabbard, a veteran of the war in Iraq, says she would end the “wars against regime change” and redistribute taxpayers’ money to “meet very real and urgent needs of the American people., things like medical care, education, infrastructure [and] protect our environment. ”

Regarding medical care, Gabbard supports “Medicare for All” but says he prefers to call it “Medicare Option”. According to her, “nothing can excuse” the fact that the United States, one of the richest countries in the world, still has “too” many Americans with insufficient or uninsured insurance and are in an emergency in health care, far from total financial disaster “.

Asked about his parents, who would be linked to Chris Butler, a man known to be a cult leader of a group called the Identity Science Foundation, Gabbard declined to answer, calling the question “offensive.”

She says she actively practices Hinduism Vaishnava, who “takes steps to serve others, protect our planet and develop my own personal relationship of love with God”.
